A GREAT GATHERING OF MEMBERS OF THE BAR AND
OTHER CITIZENS IN THE FEDERAL COURT ELO
QUENT ADDRESSES MADE, WITH MANY REFEREN
CES TO JUDGE DOLE'S PUBLIC SERVICES.
A splendid tribute was paid to United States Judge Dole this morn
ing by members of the bar, on the occasion of his being sworn in and
taking the bench. The Federal court was crowded and many people
were unable to get in at all. Though court was regularly in session,
the remarks made by various speakers were applauded several times.
Governor Carter was among those in court, also Mrs. Dole, Mrs. Frear,
Mrs. Lorrin Andrews, Mrs. A. G. Hawes and Miss Warner, and a gen
eral gathering of Territorial and Federal officials and citizens.
Governor Dole, as he was then, entered the court room a moment
after io o'clock, accompanied by Chief Justice Frear, who wore the
black robes of his office. The oath was taken at once. It was read
by the chief justice in impressive tones and Governor Dole responded
in a voice that could be plainly heard. His response to the oath ended
his term as Governor and made George R. Carter Acting Governor.
Sanford B. Dole went through the ceremony with his usual calm
ness and dignity. The written oath was handed to him by Chief Justice
Frear and he sat down and signed it, after which the chief justice signed
as witness, and then Dole took the bench and Marshal Hendry opened
the court according to the usual form.
Judge Dole was very brief in his remarks to the bar. He said that
lie anticipated great satisfaction in. administering the work of the court
and .that resuming his old relations with the bar gave him pleasure. He
anticipated working together with the members of the bar for those
ends for which courts arc establishe'd, "which arc largely the proper
administration of justice between man and man."
W. O. Smith said that as president of thtc Bar Association it was his
pleasant duty to express the bar's welcome of Governor Dole to the
Federal bench and to express tile pleasure with which himself and the
community welcomed the appointment. "It is appropriate that refer
ence should be made at this time to your long public service," said the

the same judgement and mercy, as have characterized your administra
tions of public offices in the past. Of the three departments of govern
ment, legislative, executive and judiciary, none is higher than the judi
ciary the administering of justice between 'man and man. In the his
tory of our Hawaiian courts, they have always been a safeguard of jus
tice and a bulwark of the rights of the people and by this they have
earned the world's respect, and we feel that under this appointment
they will hold it. In behalf of the bar I take great pleasure in express
ing our sentiments of welcome and appreciation."
"General A. S. Hartwcll, senior member of our bar, and Cecil
Brown, next to him on the roll of attorneys of the Supreme Court of
the Territory, arc here, and will further express the sentiments of the
General Hartwell made an address in which there were rcfereiices to
political events of the recent past never before made public. "Judge
Dole," he said, "you have had evil enough said about you in the last
ten years to make it appropriate that on this occasion, when you lay
aside the executive work you have so long carried on, you should hear
a few pleasant things. I don't think all the nice things should be said
about a man after he is dead or by partisans. This community of Ho
nolulu is one of varied nationalities and various ways of looking at
things, but is after all in my opinion of a good kind.
"When in January, 1893, the crisis occurred, the then occupant of
the throne had for the time at least disavowed constitutional obligations,
and in the opinion of a majority of the vigorous minds here it was a fit
occasion for declaring the throne vacant. It was a great question with
er Kaiulani, the heiress in line, should be elevated to the throne or a
new government be established. I don't know myself except by infer
ence what were your views on that point, but you were able to do what
many are not able to do to follow without regard to self the course
decided by the majority. It was a critical time. In my opinion there
was not a single person in this community wlo could have taken the
position you took with equal success, and convinced all classes, both
friends and onnoncnts. the masses and the comparatively small Ameri
can element, tlyit your course was always one of complete integrity and
desire to safeguard the public interests, it was tins tnat carrieu me
country through those critical years and I think history will so record
"As far as I know the main criticism of you has been that your fault
u,ic fliif nf nnt holnrr iinrfisnii inniirrli. Whether from teninerament
or vour view of ritrht nrincinles. vou were not regarded as a success
ful politician. I speak plainly. That was just what was wanted during
those years. That feeling even among opponents that you would see'
the fair thing done regardless of whom it affected was the greatest
strength of the government."
General Hartwell said that the offices Dole had held had come to
him unsought, and that it was rare good fortune for a man to he able
to say so. When annexation was completed and there was a question
as to who should be goyemor, Dole's friends had felt that he should
declare himself and say if he wanted the office. "I took the liberty of
telling you of this feeling among your! friends," continued the speaker,
"and of savintr that vou should lav aside your principle of the office
seeking the man. But I went away o Washington without the slightest
hint as to whether vou wanted the governorship or not. You wouldn't
even tell me whether you would take it or not. I'cw believed this, in
fact it was stated that the principal object of my visit to Washington
was to secure vour appointment as governor." General Hartwell said
